Sema Hernandez (TX-Sen), "Criminal Justice Reform"

The most important issue, however, is combating police brutality and the targeting of African-Americans. Police violence against minorities has increased each year, as law enforcement becomes more and more militarized. All law enforcement personnel should undergo racial sensitivity training and de-escalation training before they are handed a badge and a weapon. They should be trained to protect – not attack – those suffering from mental illness. Any officer who targets racial minorities or using unnecessary force must be terminated immediately, with no receptions.
